Are these genital warts?

Are these genital warts?
Hi--do you have a photo to show me?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Hi I can send several. Bumps started appearing outside vaginal opening and also as clusters inside. My gynae said it was hymenal remnants but since then more have appeared - does anything cause more lumps to appear? On inside they are singular rather than crinkled wall rugae - and lots appearing. I can send several photos

I am very worried as more keep appearing
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
but the doctor said it looks normal. What do you think? Is it normal for them to suddenly appear in clusters?
No they don't look at all like genital warts
They look like benign polyps and nothing serious at all.
They can be treated with liquid nitrogen freezing if necessary
Let me know if you need more information please

What would be the reason for these polyps rapidly growing in clusters though? I had unprotected intercourse so thats why I was concerned.They start as clear bubbles then progress into lumps. May i send you a couple more photos?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
This circular area at bottom (inside vagina) has a cluster of raised lumps
Thanks. Actually those look like molluscum contagiosa--a viral thing but not genital warts. They can be spread sexually but they usually disappear in a matter of a few weeks without any treatment
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
What's the difference between those and genital warts? They have been there for 8 weeks now :(
Different virus and people can also get them on the skin--kids get these a lot.
They just don't look at all like condyloma accuminata--genital warts
But again they can be frozen with liquid nitrogen by a dermatologist

Thank you. Would you recommend just leaving them?
Yes for now I wouldn't treat them since there's every reason to expect them to vanish in time
Let me know how it goes and please remember to rate my service to you
